      Sounds like the early 34's came with Plexiglas shelves then sometime down the line they changed to wire shelves, not really sure why I don't see an advantage or disadvantage to either one, I suppose it's just one of those little changes that take place as the boat evolves.
       The head scratcher for me is a dealer delivering a brand new boat with no refrigerator, I just thought they were installed at the factory.

My evaporator is located on the forward vertical wall, opposite of the photos. The trays I have are coated wire in two different lengths. They fit into the recesses molded into the inboard and outboard walls.

     Jon,

      Is your compressor unit located forward of the refrigerator?

My unit is mounted on the forward wall with a large piece of plexi for the bottom shelf and a shorter piece for the top shelf.
This is a new unit installed by the PO but I do not see any holes on the aft wall where a previous install might have been.

That's the S vs SX vs SXT model.

 Probably a carryover from the C-30, where initially only an ice box was installed, then refrigeration became an option, then standard equipment on the MK-II, MK-III. On the C-30 features like that, instruments, if not a custom ordered boat, they were just dealer installed to customer's specs. My 84 shelves are plexiglass just like below.

Remember when AC was an option on car??   I remember my dad buying a Plymouth off the lot, which did not have AC, and it was a dealer install.

 If someone has the spec/order/option sheet from an MK-I or MK-II it may show that as an option. Those brochures just reference 'ice box' generically.

    Do I remember when AC was an option on a car? I remember when radios and heaters were options on cars.

    That was the standard of the day, you started with a basic boat with a lot of options available, as I recall the basic C30 for example came with a tiller handle, the wheel being optional. The C34 on the other hand really ushered in a new era where Catalina began to move up scale to a more well appointed boat, example the wheel steering being standard. That's why I was surprised by a C34 being delivered without refrigeration.

     Same question for you Dave, where is you compressor unit located?

Yes my compressor is located forward of the refrigerator, and forward of the starboard water tank with a vent open to the salon area. I've attached 2 photos to help.

Thanks Stu!!  Mea culpa, I looked under the brochures, didn't think about "evolution". I'll put a link to those under the brochures

    Jon,

      I do like the location of your compressor, inside the boat, in a dry compartment. If I hadn't just finished installing my compressor in the original location I might have considered relocating it, but it's in now and it's not moving.

PO placed the new one in the hanging locker. Not the greatest use of space but well ventilated.

     Dave,

        Is that the locker across from the galley or the one in the V-berth? It seems there's no correct location(which I had originally assumed)for this unit, it's more whatever creativity will allow.
